A discussion site focused on [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin teen and children's fantasy and science fiction]], [[http://wandsandworlds.com/community/ Wands and Worlds]] was founded in 2005 by Sheila Ruth. It grew to incorporate a wide variety of active members from many fandoms, the most popular being ''Literature/WarriorCats'', due to the semi-regular author chats held at the site. Although it is still used for book discussion, it has become more of a general forum for teens, and other ages as well.

----
!!This website provide examples of:
* AnyoneCanDie: During a Mafia, to the point where normally benevolent members can turn [[BitchInSheepsClothing quite sneaky]].
* BadassBookworm: Everyone can have their moments.
* BerserkButton:
** [[ViewerGenderConfusion People calling]] [[{{Transsexual}} CloudWind]] [[ViewerGenderConfusion a girl]].
** [[BeleagueredBureaucrat Losty]] thinks that the whole "the government is the root of all evil" thing [[BerserkButton gets old pretty fast]].
* BigNo: Taken to epic proportions on more than one occasion.
* BitchInSheepsClothing: Ivyflower.
* BreakingTheFourthWall: ''[[http://wandsandworlds.com/community/node/6529 Reality and Fiction]]'', etc.

** Cloud "I just put a head and some eyes on layaway, guys!" Wind, AKA the guy that Sevenclaws calls "Freakish Person."
* CoolBigSis: Crescentmoon.
* CoolOldLady: Starsight, AKA [[EmbarrassingNickname Long-Tongued Old Lady]]. This nickname was originally something of a BerserkButton but now seems to be tolerated for the most part.
** She's not THAT old...
*** [[ReallySevenHundredYearsOld That's up for debate.]]
* CrazyCatLady: Many members are self-identified Crazy Cat Ladies.
** [[HeroesLoveDogs Subverted by Losty]]
* CrowningMomentOfHeartwarming: The Brightspirit thing (see ShoutOut).

* ExpandedUniverse: There is now a [[http://wiki.wandsandworlds.com/Main_Page wiki]].
* FanDumb: Averted more often than you'd expect.
* FanNickname: Happens to most members and more than a few fictional characters. Commonly takes the first part of the name and adds a y.
** Also "Wandie", as a term for any member of the site.
** Sevenclaws has one for everyone: Along with LTOL (Long-Tongued Old Lady) for Starry, there's LTOM (Long-Tongued Old Man) for Coal, FP (Freakish Person) for Cloudy, Zound for Soundstorm...
* FurryFandom: Subverted - in the early days of Wands and Worlds' existence, most members referred to themselves as cats, as ''Literature/WarriorCats'' was the main (if not only) fandom then.
* GenkiGirl: A lot of the younger members, most notably Forestpelt's early days.
* GettingCrapPastTheRadar: Happens a lot more often now than it did in the past.
* HeadphonesEqualIsolation: Averted by several members.
* HeterosexualLifePartners: Flametail and Lakestorm.

* LethalChef: Spirithunter.
* [[LoadsandLoadsofCharacters Loads And Loads Of Members]]
* MemeticMutation: *shot*
* NaughtyByNight: The late-night Skype conversations members have definitely would not be allowed under the rules of the actual site.
* TheNicknamer: Sevenclaws. His nicknames ([[SmallNameBigEgo and for that matter, himself]]) are undoubtedly the best. No contest.
* PintSizedPowerhouse / ChildProdigy: Magicyop.
* OldShame: A lot of old-timers who posted fanfiction in their earlier years... really regret it.
** Especially CloudWind, who considers everything he did before the age of 15 to be AWFUL.
* TheRival: Rabbitfoot and Sevenclaws - it goes both ways, although Seven considers everyone else to be his rival to a lesser extent.
* RunningGag: Many.
* ShoutOut: The names Brightspirit, Braveheart, and Shiningheart from ''[[Literature/WarriorCats Long Shadows]]'' were coined by members in honor of a ''Warriors'' fan and her family who were killed by the February 2008 tornado in Kansas. [[http://wandsandworlds.com/community/node/3487]] [[http://wandsandworlds.com/community/node/5973]]

* TeamMom: Sheila.

* ThereAreNoGirlsOnTheInternet: Averted - approximately 3 out of 4 members are female.
* TrueCompanions
* TheWatcher: There must be several members who aren't premium but read the forums anyway.

* WhatDoYouMeanItsNotPolitical: Losty's interpretation of some things.
* YourDaysAreNumbered: Premium membership only lasts a year.
